Merry New York Christmas

It was in the season of 2002 that Rob Thomas wrote, recorded and released the Christmas single titled

‘A New York Christmas’

The song intended to help raise funds for the

Blythedale Children’s Hospital

in Westchester, New York. Rob had been performing here a number of years in a private concert for the children.  He says;

“It’s an amazing, sobering thing, you know, to go and you see someone who’s 11, 12 years old who’s going through more than I’ve ever gone through in my entire life. And, you say, ‘How’s your Christmas?'” 

Perhaps the true meaning of Christmas can be found inside those words.

Thank you for a beautiful song Rob Thomas. It’s timeless to hearts around the world.

A mother prays, “Sleep tight, my child, sleep well
For I’ll be at your side
That no shadow, no darkness, no tolling bell,
Shall pierce your dreams this night”

In the garden at Gethsemane
He prayed for the life he’d never live,
He beseeched his Heavenly Father to remove
The cup of death from his lips

Now there’s a loss that can never be replaced,
A destination that can never be reached
A light you’ll never find in another’s face,
A sea whose distance cannot be breached

Well Jesus kissed his mother’s hands
Whispered, “Mother, still your tears,
For remember the soul of the universe
Willed a world and it appeared
